Cedar Drift Boats and Big Brown Trout in Northern Michigan is Ideal River Fishing

Handmade cedar drift boats and big brown trout fishing is something you may not have thought of for Michigan but this proves us all wrong.

Cedar drift boats and big brown trout is all about capitalizing on your own home waters to get on some great fish. It is also unique that these guys pursue big browns at night out of their boats and hook into some monster browns.

Now that is some unique but awesome trout fishing. It is also impressive how they can get these cedar drift boats into some very tight spots on the river. Drift boats are unique in their design to provide a very shallow draft and are also very tough to allow an angler to ride out some pretty challenging waters.

It helps that this craftsman designs his own boats and can build them exactly for the river conditions and fishing style in Michigan. I always thought drift boat fishing was fairly unique to the west but lately have found guide services in the east who can get you on some excellent fishing from drift boats.
